I’m a California girl raised in Pasadena. I grew up with two sisters close in age and a mother who wore tons of make-up and inspired her 3 daughters! We started off as wanna-bee makeup artists, applying layers of makeup and pretending to be Beauty Queens; just like mom! Later when we were teenagers we took our knowledge and applied it to the faces of all of our friends. We “Naired” our body hair and plucked our brows. We even took a clothes iron to straighten our hair. It was the 80s so anything went back then! As we got older, we started to take things a little more seriously, and one by one, all three of us went into the beauty industry.
I started off learning theater makeup at SMC, UCLA Extension and Cinema Secrets, where I was encouraged by my instructor to apply for an estheticians license, so I did. My instructor must have been very intuitive because I discovered that my passion was truly in skincare and helping other people. Upon graduation, I opened up the phone book (not Google) and with eyes closed pointed to the first beauty salon in Malibu where I would apply and work for 3 years. I took over that business and for 20 years took care of my loyal clientele and their skincare needs.
Back in 2011, I heard about an opportunity at a new salon in Brentwood called Queen Bee Salon & Spa. I had heard they had a reputation for excellence and a buzzing skincare department. I interviewed but unfortunately my schedule as a busy mom did not fit their needs. However, I am happy to say that a position opened up in October 2018 and I am now happily at home in my new hive. I have a passion for hands-on facials and since I also have a massage license I am able to send you into a deep state of relaxation. My goal is to use the purest, results-driven products on your skin and help you in any way I can. I am an amazing listener and as a mom, I also understand the demands of everyday life!
I am a wife, a mother to a human, and to many furry creatures. I look forward to meeting you in Brentwood or Culver City.
